Meet Lyndsey!

Lyndsey-Profe-Nativo-Escuela-Inglés-MadridName: Lyndsey

Where are you from? Scotland.

Tell us a bit about yourself: I’m from a little village near Edinburgh and I’ve been living in Madrid for a year and a half.

How long have you been working at the Language Corner? Since September 2014.

What do you like most about teaching? I love people and I really enjoy getting to know my students. I feel very satisfied when I see their English developing and their confidence in the language growing.

What hobbies or talents do you have? I love to sing, explore and meet people.

What kind of music do you like? I like lots of different styles: soul, reggae, folk, jazz, flamenco and pop.

What is your favourite movie? I like foreign films and I love directors like Emir Kusturica and David Lynch. My favourite film of last year was The Grand Budapest Hotel.

What book are you reading right now? Spanish Verbs and Grammar!

Where is your favourite place in Madrid? I love Retiro, Parque del Oeste and many of the beautiful parks and museums in Madrid. I also like hanging out in Lavapies and La Latina.

Tell me something interesting about yourself: I studied Russian and hope to re-learn everything that I’ve lost over the next year as well as improve my Spanish.

Top tip for learning English: Try to study a little every day and be consistent! I really feel that 10 or 20 minutes a day is more effective than trying to learn lots of grammar in long sessions.
